- Introduction to natural language processingStructural features of texts in natural language; ambiguity on all levels of language; the main challenges of natural language processing; basic approaches to problem solving: manually written rules and machine learning.
- Basic text processing and edit distancePreprocessing: tokenization and segmentation; normalization of words: stemming, lemmatization, morphological analyzers; regular expressions; edit distance.
- Language modelsN-grams; perplexity; methods of smoothing; the use of language models: input prediction, error correction, speech recognition, text generation.
- Tagging problems and hidden Markov modelsPOS tagging; named entity recognition as a tagging problem; hidden Markov models, their ad-vantages and disadvantages; the Viterbi algorithm.
